Scott Lively in Uganda


The First Circuit Court of the United States Court of  Appeals DENIED Scott Lively’s dismissal demand in the crimes against humanity suit filed against him by Sexual Minorities Uganda.


United States Court of Appeals
For the First Circuit
 No. 13-2503  SCOTT LIVELY, individually and as President of Abiding Truth Ministries,Petitioner.
Before Howard, Thompson and Kayatta,Circuit Judges.
Entered: December 4, 2014 This petition for a writ of mandamus raises a number of potentially difficult issues withrespect to the Alien Tort Statute, 28 U.S.C. § 1350, and the First Amendment in cross-border application. Although it is debatable whether the district court has properly parsed the petitioner’s protected speech from any unprotected speech or conduct, his right to extraordinary relief is not clear and indisputable. See Cheney v. U.S. Dist. Court for D.C., 542 U.S. 367, 380-81 (2004).Further development of the facts will aid in the ultimate disposition of this case.The petition is denied.

Case: 13-2503 Document: 00116772251

Lively, the founder of Abiding Truth Ministries, an officially recognized hate group has made a career of stirring up anti-gay feelings in the USA and across the world.

He co-authored The Pink Swastika, which suggests ‘homosexuals were the truth inventors of Nazism and the guiding force behind many Nazi atrocities’ and the rainbow flag is a symbol of the ‘end times’.

Lively  is accused of engineering the Uganda ‘Kill The Gays’ bill.

This is the second time that Lively and his defense team from The Liberty Council have petitioned for dismissal and lost.

  1. Please help fund this documentary against western backed homophobia in Uganda. Please give what you can & share http://www.gofundme.com/ewla3g

    Western evangelicals from the UK and US have been preaching hate in Uganda which has led to anti-gay legislation that has caused extreme persecution of the LGBT community and led to an increase in violence, rape and murder. It has also led to a rise in HIV infection rates as people no longer have access to health care.

    A new law promised as a “Christmas present” to the people of Uganda makes it illegal to provide employment, housing, transport and even health care to members of the LGBT community.

    Please donate what you can to help expose the murderous hatred of these western evangelicals and the vile propaganda they tell to the Ugandan people to perpetuate the hatred of and violence towards an already persecuted minority.
